What is Paleo?

The paleo diet is similar to the diet caveman had in the Stone Age, basic and most the time uncooked. This raw friendly diet is making its way to the top of everyone’s eating routine and recommendation list for eating lifestyles. But when someone tells you “ I’m going paleo” what does that mean exactly? Between all the old tweaked recipes and new recipes popping up on the internet everyday, beginning the paleo diet is not as easy as it used to be for cavemen. It’s getting more an more difficult for the paleo diet beginners to decipher which foods are acceptable- and which foods are a big no-go. Is a cup of coffee OK? What about potatoes?
